Sacramento area dentist describes braces for straight teeth
Sacramento area patients who are dealing with an imperfect smile may have considered braces for straight teeth. However, the primary turn-off with traditional orthodontics is the fact that the teeth are covered with metal brackets and wires, which are unattractive. Instead, patients are welcome to ask Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams about solutions such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a revolutionary way for patients to achieve straighter teeth without the need for conventional braces. Brackets and wires can be a thing of the past for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the smile and bite. Invisalign uses aligner trays that are created in a series. Each one is worn for about two weeks before the next tray is used. They snap firmly in place over the dental arch, and they are worn day and night until the next tray is used.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams prefer to use Invisalign for patients who are excited about improving their smile but less than thrilled about using traditional orthodontia. In many cases, Invisalign can be used as an alternative for teenagers and adults who want to enhance their smile.
Patients undergo an initial consultation appointment to find out if they are viable candidates for Invisalign orthodontics. This includes x-rays and an examination. Mild to moderate malocclusion of the dental arch and the bite can be treated with Invisalign. Patients must also understand that compliance is important to achieve the results they desire. Patients will typically be able to enjoy their brand new in smiles in a year or less when complying with the process and attending regular check-ups with their dentist to ensure the teeth are responding to treatment as expected. Any non-compliance will delay results and may require additional expense to fabricate more trays if necessary.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento welcome new patients to their practice to learn about orthodontic solutions available that can help them avoid the need for traditional metal braces.
